Honestly – we hear this a lot (and no, the featured pic is NOT our gym!). You’re at your local Pure Gym/Virgin/DL and it’s just too damn busy. But, it’s also convenient – it’s round the corner from work or home, and your work and family commitments mean it’s a struggle to go to a…

Many people see it as a badge of honour to do a three hour gym session. Regardless of whether you’re training for hypertrophy or strength, a session that lasts over 1 hour is most often counterproductive. (Click here for some training plans that take just two hours a week!)  More time on the gym floor…

Following on from our squatting article last week, here’s a basic guide for deadlifting. Much like the squatting article, this isn’t intended to cover every single aspect of deadlifting (we could run to a small book on that), but to address the most common issues/faults/tips that we see on a daily basis. As with most…

  So, who’s the article for? Probably everyone. I doubt that many people reading this are doing everything. Some will have found a better way than I talk about, but I’m guessing 99% of people that read this have never squatted 200kg, so if you haven’t, there’s probably something here that can help you on that…

Suggest to people that keeping an eye on their bank balance might be a good idea, and no-one bats an eyelid. You know; just make sure enough is coming in to match everything going out. Check your balance once a week or so. We all know if we don’t pay attention, we spend more than…

Back to Basics Every now and then, no matter whether you’ve been training decades or months, a good old fashioned turn-it-off-turn-it-on-again is needed. It’s human nature to convince ourselves we’re better than we are, or more advanced than we are, and there aren’t many arenas more susceptible to that than the gym. The hard truth…

RWF’s fourth official BDFPA Full Power was a great success last week, with lifters from 14yrs to 81ys old taking part. The results can be downloaded here: RWFResultsJuniorsAndMasters Congratulations to all the winners, and well done to everyone who took part. We look forward to seeing you all next time!  

A couple of weeks ago, RWF Gym hosted it’s first BDFPA (British Drug Free Powerlifting Association) powerlifting meet. We had 36 lifters travelling from as far afield as Devon and Hull, plus a great number of gym members, competing in challenging conditions – it was the hottest day of the year with temps reaching 33C…

Our second RWF comp was a great success last week, with almost everyone setting PBs and a generally excellent standard of lifting from novices and experienced lifters alike. We also managed to raise a significant sum for charity – when we’ve got around to donating we’ll put the confirmation emails up for clarity. Onwards and…

When we set up the RWF Gym last year, we were conscious that we were taking a very successful personal training business into a whole new arena. I’d personally spent nearly 8 years setting up a company that encouraged all walks of life to accept that personal training, and getting stronger, was for everyone – not…
